urban farms to thrive in Chicago.*
A reader took this photo of the northwest corner of Ainslie and Kenmore and says: "I was out of town for a month and a half, and when I came back this garden on Kenmore, next to Mid-America care center, had sprung to life! Seems that not long ago it was a dirt lot littered with beer cans and covered with snow... my only question is, where does all the produce go?"
* Fun fact: According to Curbed Chicago, the ordinance will, among other things, legalize aquaponics (i.e., fish farms). Funny how the fact that it wasn't even legal at the time didn't stand in the way of Ald. Shiller's plans to purchase the 1025 W. Sunnyside building with TIF money, allegedly for the purpose of turning it into a fish farm. Makes us wonder -- again -- what the real purpose was behind that proposed purchase. Of course, she managed to spend all the money remaining in the Wilson Yard TIF fund anyway.
